Scotch Fillet American Burger

(This is pretty much a clone of the US Chain Wendy's 1/4 Pound Burger, but with fresher ingredients.)

Start with approx 120grams of scotch fillet per burger.

If you don't own a mincer, go to town with a sharp knife (start by cutting into small cubes, then go ballistic.)

Image


Place the mince in a freezer bag, and season with pepper and salt. Mix whilst meat is inside freezer bag.

Use Kitchen scales to measure approx 120grams onto waxed paper, and press into a square approx 10cm x 10cm

Image


Prepare toppings for burger: Per burger: 2 thin tomato slices, white onion, 2 slices of pickled cucumber, 1 or 2 thin slices of cheddar, shredded iceberg lettuce.

Image


Place meat patty of hot plate and immediate add small sprinkle of salt. Cook 2 mins, then turn and cook further 2 mins.

Image


While the meat patty is resting on paper towel, lightly toast the buns by placing face down on hot place for approx 30 seconds.

Image


Prepare burger from Top, smother 1 Tbs of S&W Whole Egg Mayo on bun, followed by swirl of Kraft Ketchup. Then Pickles, onion, tomato, and lettuce. Add 5 "spots" of America Mild Mustard to the Lettuce. Then Add Cheese, followed by the meat patty. Place bottom on burger and flip over.

Enjoy.

Nice, very nice.

It's only 6:30am, and I'm already hungry just looking at that.

A few burger making tips.

1. Only buy mince from a butcher you trust, never from a supermarket. Here's an analysis of what is typically in your mince:

"Ground beef is usually made from leaner, tougher and less desirable beef created when the sides of beef are carved into steaks and roasts.[2] About 17-18% of US ground beef comes from dairy cows..."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beef_mince

2. Preferably, grind your own beef, but don't be a moron (like me) and use a knife, buy a mincer instead. K-Mart currently sell standalone electric mincers for $30.00. (Looks just as solid as the $100 one I bought from Aldi.)

3. Buy twice as many cuts of beef as you need for burgers. Trim the fat off half, add that to the other 50% of the meat and grind - you want around 15% fat in the mince for flavour; With the other 50% (minus the fat) slice thinly for use in stirfrys etc. Place beef in freezer bags, using electronic scales to measure lots of around 110g for the burger patties.
